Re: TWINS - need advice boosting supply
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new babies! How wonderful that they arrived full term, at terrific birth weights, and- I am assuming- vaginally? Having all three of those things at once is becoming rare for twins, but your LOs are lucky to have been given such a great start.
Your LC gave you good advice about pumping. The best way to increase supply is to remove more milk more frequently. Babies are usually better at removing milk than even the best pump, so I think the best thing for you to do would be to simply nurse the babies as much as possible while watching their diaper output very carefully. As long as diaper output stays on track, you can be sure that your babies are getting enough to eat.
I can only imagine the special, time-consuming challenges of nursing and mothering twins. That's why I hate advising you to work even harder than you already are! But the mechanics of milk supply are the same whether you are nursing one baby or three babies: remove more milk more often, and nurse the baby or babies directly and on demand, and supply should be no problem.
How about going back to the LC, or to a different LC, for help on positioning the babies so that you can nurse them simultaneously?
